discussed. one that is significant for us and for your public is there will be a limiting order not quite a full gag order, but something that will include something like a gag order, information released to the press and therefore to the public. so a lot of what's in the search warrant will not be made public for a long time as this point. and from this point forward, charges one week from now and then the schedule of a preliminary hearing at which time there will be some testimony taken probably from tr both sides just as to establish there is probable cause for an arraignment. and then at that point a couple things will kick in. we'll hear about -- the clock will start for the prosecution during which they have to decide whether to go for death. and the defense will have to determine and say at arraignment when they have to enter a plea, not guilty by reason of in-issay insanity. likely be examinations. perhaps committed to the state hospital. and then a determination about whether he can assist in his own defense, understands the charges against him or needs to be restored to sanity.
has their life robbed from them. when someone who we can tell is just like us feels the loss about someone they care about. and that is the one good thing to come of this. but it is and do not let this pas like so many other events in the news, far more important than the arguments we have on "hardball." being united is always better than being divided. on this tragedy in aurora, colorado, we are surely together. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> welcome to "politicsnation." i'm al sharpton live in dallas. tonight's lead, portrait of an accused killer. tonight the suspected gunman in colorado's shooting has made his first courtroom appearance since the horrific tragedy that left 12 people dead and 58 others injured. james holmes had dyed orange/red hair and seemed dazed and glassy eyed. sometimes closing his eyes as the hearing proceeded. he didn't say anything in court and seemed disconnected. even when the judge talked about the victims. >> for protection order if you'd hand a copy. shall not possess o
or is he aware? can you tell us, is there something that would affect his demeanor because he seemed to not even pay attention. >> we would have no information about that. that is not something that would be shared with us. >> as the district attorney here, and long-time prosecutor, from the outset does this seem as though it is a slam-dunk case, given the evidence you have amassed so far? >> i would say there's no such thing as a slam-dunk case. it is a case where we will -- we're still looking at the enormous amount of evidence and we would never presume that it would be slam-dunk. we will work very hard on this case to prosecute it just like we would any other ce. >> talk about what he's being held on, please, what he was arrested on, please. can you tell us? >> i'm aware that you may not [ inaudible ] but if it was your decision, would this be a death penalty case? >> i don't think that that's a case that can be made in the abstract. there is so much that victims have to take into account and victims will be impacted by that decision in an enormous way for years, if the death pen
the media to know where they are. >> can you tell us what their reaction was when they first heard their son's name and how are they coping. >> i think arlene holmes statement clarifies that a bit as to how they reacted. >> in the statement she says she didn't know whether -- didn't know about the shooting. she has found out about the shooting, can you tell us about the reaction? >> i think everyone can imagine how they are feeling, anyone who has been a parent. >> [ inaudible ] >> possibly. possibly. >> do you think they will be getting offers? >> yes. >> considering -- >> not at this time. >> clarifying the fact that she -- it was reported she wasn't surprised. she seems to be attempting to clarify that. >> that's not exactly what she said. that's the interpretation the media were giving to that statement that somehow, oh, i'm not surprised this is the person. that's not what she was saying. >> can you elaborate on that? was she surprised? >> i am not going to comment on that. >> tell us how you know them? >> i represent them. >> i understand that. how -- [ inaudible ] >> i was referred to
in any one of us. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts now. >>> the face of horror. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with what someone can do with a semiautomatic rifle. a clip containing 100 bullets, he can shoot a person is second without reloading. he can walk into a movie theater and start shooting human beings like they were plastic ducks in a shooting gallery. he can do it for no other reason he feels like it. has has the confidence to carry out that and the lack of a conscious. today we got the tiers good look at james holmes, the man in custody for this hard crime. two questions, could we spot it ahead of time? you know the saying guns don't kill people do. what about this person? second question, did ben franklin and others with all their foresight imagine anyone would tote around a weapon like this or were they thinking someone from the neighborhood carrying a musket. was the original intent of founding fathers have people stroll into theaters carrying the kind of firepower this one did. can anyone hon
health problems. but more likely again think about the use of some illicit substance or abuse of prescription medication to give that type of appearance. >> let's go to corbin dates, a witness in the second row of that theater. thank you for joining us tonight. what did you feel when you saw the picture of that guy in court today, corbin, james holmes. >> i'd say as soon as i was watching the trial on cnn today, i felt completely numb. i felt no emotion whatsoever when i was looking at the face of the gunman. >> did he look dangerous to you? did he remind you of what you saw in the theater? >> honestly, looking at his face, he looked like an average person that you would see probably at a mall or anywhere common. you would not put two and two together if you saw that person and if you were there that night. you would never know. >> compare him to what you saw, the two gentlemen, whatever you saw, compare him to what you saw in the theater the night that everything went horribly. >> the night in the theater, as soon as the door swung open and the person in black walked into the
of people are with us and helping to share our burden of grief at this moment. >> reporter: a sunday vigil to help heal. in all, 12 are among the dead. a 6-year-old girl, a navy sailor, an air force reservist and two young men who died shielding their girlfriends from bullets. fathers, sons, daughters, each with lives cut short. the president addressed a grieving community and talked privately with families of the victims. >> my main task was to serve as a representative of the entire country and let them know we are thinking about them at this moment and will continue to think about them each and every day. >> reporter: the suspect, 24-year-old james holmes, today will be advised of his rights and the judge will set a date for the formal filing of charges. it's the start of a legal process that may take months. >> we will convict him. yes. >> reporter: at issue whether the prosecutor will seek the death penalty. the defense will likely argue whether holmes is mentally competent while the city is forever changed. evidence will include what was found inside the suspect's apartment, explosiv
. police say the ammunition, gear and four weapons used in the attack including an assault rifle, are believed to have been purchased legally. the suspect apparently received up to 50 packages in the mail in the four months leading up to the attack. he purchased 6,000 rounds of ammunition over the internet. one law enforcement official says the massacre could have been far worse if the shooter's semiautomatic rifle hadn't jammed as investigators believe it had. new york city mayor michael bloomberg yesterday called on the two presidential candidates to lead a national debate on gun control. >> somebody's got to do something about this and this requires, particularly in a presidential year, the candidates for president of the united states to stand up and once and for all say, yes, they feel terrible, yes, it's a tragedy, yes, we have great sympathy for the families but it's time for this country to do something. that's the job of the president of the united states. and i don't know what they're going to do, but i think it's incumbent on them to tell us specifically, not just in b
and as a husband. and i think that the receason stories like this have such an impact on us is because we can all understand what it would be to have somebody that we love taken from us in this fashion. >> in less than 24 hours after this horrific tragedy, thousands gathered together in vigil, singing and praying, vowing never to forget. >> john blunk, we will all remember. a.j. boik, we will all remember. jesse childress. >> we will all remember. >> nbc's chris jansing leads our coverage from the courthouse in colorado. chris, good morning. the procedure we're expected to see here coming up this half hour, it will be a brief one, correct? >> very brief. it could be as simple as less that be a minute. this is not an arraignment, it's what's called an advisement hearing. and basically, they're saying to the defendant, do you know why you're here? he will be represented by two attorneys from the public defender's office. we're told the two most experienced in that office, dan king and tamara bradley. and there are only three people on death row in colorado, two of them were put there in arapahoe co
posner, a criminal defense attorney. and rick, since you are here in colorado and know the law, let us know what's going to happen today. this is not an arraignment. >> no, not an arraignment. it's a first appearance or initial advisement. what's going to happen is mr. holmes will be advised of the charges that he is being investigated for. for our knowledge, he hasn't even been charged. so it's simply an indication of what they're looking at right now. >> in colorado, they have 72 hours to officially file charges, is that right? >> yeah, they have three business days, and that time can be extended either by agreement of the parties or the court on its own can extend that time if if necessary. >> so, obviously, larry, this is just the beginning of what's going to be a very long process. here we have somebody who was seen by dozens, hundreds of witnesses, picked up at the scene in body armor, directed police, they say, to an apartment that was booby trapped. this is not a question of, was he the guy, as much as, right now, is he competent to stand trial. would that be a fair assessment?
's the question of the insanity defense. at that arraignment, the defense will signal whether it attends to use the not guilty by reason of insanity defendase. the state will have the clock starting on the 60 days it has on decide whether it will seek the death penalty. and that's not an easy decision and only would be that will be made in consuin consultation wi victims and families. and because it's an important decision for them, so it won't be made easily or lightly. but the state will have 60 days to make that decision. if it's determined that the defendant is not cooperating with his attorney, not at all assisting in his defense, he'll be held over for psychiatric examinations with examiners both from the prosecution side and defense side probably sent to the state hospital in pueblo for those examinations. and if he continues to be nonresponsive, he can be given as happened in the jared loughner case in arizona psychotropic drugs to try to restore him to sanity so he can be ruled able to help in his defenses. so all those things are down the line. this morning was just the initial procee
is heartbroken. i think hemingway says the world breaks us all, but afterward, we're stronger in the broken places. i think that's what we heard in the hospitals yesterday. we went to many of the hospitals and visited families and the victims. and there was a buoyancy or a resill aer resiliency where people were not going to let this define their life, they were going to fight back. >> there is your experience as a mayor and now governor nothing that can prepare you to lead a state through something like this. i know this has been an emotional 48 hours. you spoke on friday night in such a moving way. >> well, you know, you just -- here's -- >> governor, i just want to show what you said on friday night. >> defies description. you can't connect emotions that we commonly think of. i mean everyone i've talked to all day is filled with an anger that can't find focus. >> i apologize for the interruption, but it's obviously been a difficult couple of days. >> it's been tough. the key there is -- i mean that anger, you want to strangle this guy. at a certain point that's got to translate into risi
loughner case in arizona, he engaged with people, he looked at people, he looked angrily at some of us in the media. in this instance, everybody was looking toward the door when he came in. he shuffled in, manhandcuffed hs and ankles. he wasn't engaging with his two public defenders. he didn't look at anybody. didn't look at the judge when the judge mirandized him. didn't look at the judge or respond in any way at all when the judge asked him directly whether he had anything to say and he didn't look out in the courtroom to people sitting in the 108 seats, including five family members of decedents of some of the victims who died in the theater shooting. the hearing only lasted 11 minutes. he didn't, as i say, give anybody anything to work with except to see somebody who was so lethargic that he appeared almost to be, to use a word from my generation, spaced out, drugged out. he wouldn't have had access to any other drugs obviously in prison unless he was on maintenance medication, but he had that look to him. as i said, he didn't even speak or say anything to his attorney or nod or ma
you're talking about? >> yeah. what's worth noting there is us c-appealed the sanctions and what that was able to do was, it let the new coach lane kiffin basically brace for the scholarship hits and back load his roster. if penn state doesn't appeal, that means the sanctions kick in right away. and then all of a sudden, you're in this kind of scramble mode. if there's multiple postseason bowl ban, as much as three years which some speculate it could be three, four years, that makes it really hard to recruit because those kids will not want to come in knowing most of their career they're basically playing for nothing in terms of the rest of college football. the other thing when you hear the term unprecedented here, you know, it was unprecedented with reggie bush. the ncaa ruled in a different way, in their hamming of cam newton. here's it's unprecedented with mark emmert because there was no committee on intractions process. there was no due process here to penn state but we are in uncharred waters because the circumstances of penn state, not just the crimes but the cover-up, ho
on them to tell us specifically, not just in broad terms. it's time i think that we hold them accountable and say, okay, you want our votes? what are you going to do? >> many others like colorado governor john hickenlooper expressed that more gun regulation would have prevented shootings like the ones we saw friday in aurora. >> if you look at this person that's -- again, almost a creature. if he could have gotten access to the guns bharks kind of bomb could he manufacture. we are in an information age with access to all kinds of information and he was diabolical, demonic in the twisted sense. i think almost as a terrorist who wanted to take way, not just the people here but in the country, our ability to enjoy life to go to a movie theater, which for most of us is a refuge to get away from the rest of some of the pressures of life. i'm not sure -- it's a human issue in some way. how are we not able to identify someone like this who is so deeply, deeply disturbed? >> i think we need to look at everything, i think that everything should be looked at, but to think that somehow gun control o
